About ePARA Inc.
ePARA supports people with disabilities to participate in society in their own way and with fulfillment through e-sports.
As part of its support activities, ePARA operates a media outlet to carry news about barrier-free e-sports, and organizes barrier-free e-sports tournaments.
e-Sports event business
We plan, operate and support barrier-free e-sports events, both online and offline.
We propose and implement the ways to manage these events to make them enjoyable for as many people as possible by incorporating the perspectives of people with disabilities. This includes improving the accessibility of events and taking information security into consideration. Calling ourselves barrier-free e-sports pioneers, we are aggressively propelling our unique projects such as providing training programs to e-sports aathletes with disabilities and introducing them to professional teams.
Employment agent business for persons with disabilities
We provide employment support and employment continuation support mainly for persons with disabilities.
We hold employment support events such as “ePARA VR Job Hunting Festival”, as well as introducing human resources who have proved their skills in e-sports events and media management that we are involved in. In addition, we aim to improve the retention rate and seek for an employment form in which both employees and employers can move ahead by firmly supporting the continuation of employment instead of just getting them being hired.
Web marketing business
We support web content planning, research, analysis, design, production, development, operation and more for our clients.
We formulate data-driven SEO measures and Web tactics based on the results of Web analysis. We can also take charge of content production work including site construction, writing, and video production. We aim to maximize the results driven by Web content while staying close to the issues and challenges of our clients.
Media management business
We share how people with disabilities are involved in a game and how they play it, and how barrier-free e-sports are engaging.
We also eagerly interview individuals and groups who are active in various fields of e-sports, and spread information on barrier-free e-sports from our unique perspective different from the existing media.
We provide mental coaching by coaches who are competent in each subject area. We also provide coaching by game title.
We strive to ensure quality by appointing professional athletes as mental coaches; for game coaches, we appoint people who have participated in international competitions for each title. We are also actively developing coaches so that we can maximally improve players’ skills through appropriate coaching.
